to be unconstitutional laws. >> different issue, same words. states' rights. back in the 1950s and '60s, local police often stood by and refused to enforce new civil rights laws. now, some conservative sheriffs say they'll refuse to enforce new gun control laws from washington because they may consider them unconstitutional. today's conservatives aren't opposing the right of our children to go to school. but they are standing in the way of our children going to school safely. that's why president obama is proposing these strong, common sense solutions to gun violence. >> that most fundamental set of rights to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. fundamental rights that were denied to college stunts dents virginia tech and elementary school students in newtown and kids on street corners in chicago. those rights are at stake. we're responsible. >> we're all responsible for protecting our children and that's why change is going to happen. all that talk about states' rights couldn't stop progress 50 years ago. and he must make sure it doesn't stop progress today. joining me now is co-host of "t
are the solutions? well, federal action is yielding some progress. the brady law of 1994 has blocked the sale of firearms over 1.6 million felons, fugitives and other individuals. still, more is needed. proactive approaches include renewing the assault weapons ban, closing the gun show loophole and mandating installation of trigger locks and eliminating influxes of cheaply-made weapons. this doesn't infringe on anyone's right to bear arms in this nation, but we have to do things that are common sense. there are guns that have been outlawed in this nation's history. you cannot get a submachine gun or a sawed-off shotgun, why shouldn't assault weapons be added to that group? also, gun buy-back programs in my state have removed hundreds of guns from the streets and i am considering offering legislation to bring these programs to scale on the federal level to help stem the tide of violence. these measures would undoubtedly save lives. enough is enough. it is time to take action. thank you, madam chairwoman. and i yield back the balance of my time. ms. fudge: thank you so much. i thank the gentlem
shooting made them more likely to support new gun control laws, including three measures which are said to be on vice president biden's list of recommendations that he'll deliver to president obama tomorrow. now 58% of those polls say they would support a nationwide ban on the assault of assault weapons. 37% said they wouldn't. 65% said they would back a nationwide ban on high capacity ammo clips. that's clips with more than ten rounds. less than a third said they wouldn't. only enough to win the house and nearly nine out of ten adult was support a new law requiring background checks at gun shows sales. only 11% thought that was a bad idea. but while 38% thought the nra had too much influence on gun control laws, 24% thought it had too little, and 30% agreed it had the right amount. now some would argue that the nra has way too much influence on gun laws. that was before we got a look at the coffin-shaped targets featured in their new nra "racket range" video game app released less than a month an wayne la pierre blamed shootings on the video games. >> automaker i'm confident there are

and it reaches the president's desk, he would not stand in the way of bill becoming law. >> so it appears that pressure is building on senator reid to act. meanwhile late today, sources say speaker boehner told g.o.p. members behind closed dors the house budget chairman paul ryan is working on a budget plan that would balance within ten years. boehner says he applauds that goal and shares it. >> bret: mike emanuel live on the hill. thank you. more than 24 hours after promising to respond to the threat of climate change, president obama has something else to respond to tonight. nebraska's governor approved a new route for the controversial keystone oil pipeline to put the ball scarily in the president's court. chief white house correspondent ed henry tells us that is one issue getting a second look tonight. >> attending a prayer service after a long night of celebrating the start of his second term. ♪ ♪ >> president obama woke up to a flood of cheerleading headlines about how he offered an aggressive liberal vision to act on major issues. >> we will respond to the threat of climate cha
by step, we've made progress towards that goal. over the past two years, i've signed into law about $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two weeks ago, i signed into law more than $600 billion in new revenue by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money that we'll save in interest payments on the debt, all together that adds up to a total of about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years -- not counting the $400 billion already saved from winding down the wars in iraq and afghanistan. so we've made progress. we are moving towards our ultimate goal of getting to a $4 trillion reduction. and there will be more deficit reduction when congress decides what to do about the $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts that have been pushed off until next month. the fact is, though, we can't finish the job of deficit reduction through spending cuts alone. the cuts we've already made to priorities other than medicare, medicaid, social security and defense mean that we spend on everything from education to public safety less as a share of
the federal government have a law regarding that but i think each individual state should enact a legislative negligence act that if you don't fulfill that responsibility of having a budget, you do not get paid and you get barred from running for future elective office. with regard to the debt ceiling, here we go again. the republican party, if it goes along with this deal in my opinion ought to change its name to the caveman party and boehner and mcconnell would be the cavemen in chief, because every time we come to this debt ceiling what do the republicans do? they give in. and every amount of money that this country spends is showing it's unsustainable. we've got to reform them and get our budget in order and we've got to get our spending under control. host: lori who is one of the 65 people on facebook who has commented on this this morning says that this makes the seventh debt ceiling plays the obama's term while the democratically-controlled senate hasn't passed a budget. it seems silly -- logical to me at but he'll -- by the way, it gives an advertisement to our plans for inauguration

in the days and weeks after the inauguration to sell their proposal for stiffer gun laws and gun safety package. it's a strategy they feel has been successful in the past. they used it during the fiscal cliff fight, the student loan debate and they feel it's a way to rally the american public on their side and to pressure congress to act. it has been successful in the past, will it be in this instance? of course, that is a big question mark. this is a very controversial issue. but the polls show that the president has the majority of america on his side. the wall street journal poll shows that americans favor stiffer gun laws so that is his plan moving forward. >> thanks to you, dave, before you leave, picking up on what kristin said there. the president's gun proposal here, there are a lot of folks who have surmised that the president has asked for things that politically he knows he will not be able to get, especially the assault weapon's ban, is that what the white house strategy is? >> they cannot say they are giving up on the assault weapon's ban, but i think they are looking and a
in this position. the reason for this short-term extension is to just get congress to actually follow the law that congress wrote in 1974 which is to pass a budget by april 15. we're not saying what kind of budget they have to pass. just pass a budget. reason is the senate is going on four years now for not having passed a budget. we think this gives us the time we need in this nation to have a good thorough, vigorous and honest debate of what it takes to get our fiscal house in order and about how to budget. families budget. businesses budget. our federal government should budget. we actually have a law that says we should budget. all we're saying is follow that law and that's why the short-term extension before you today. i'll let the rest of it speak for itself. >> thank you very much. mr. levin. >> first, welcome, mr. chairman. >> thank you. i think this is the first -- >> i think this is the first time i have been before you. the first time any of us has been in the chair. >> thank you. i hope i'll do good enough and make you want to come back. >> i'll come back whether i want to or not.

afghan laws. the u.s. has said it needs sole legal jurisdiction over any troops who stay, after combat forces leave at the end of 2014. in a kabul speech, karzai said it would take about eight or nine months to come to a decision. it is a decision of the people of afghanistan. the national assembly of elders of the people of afghanistan should decide whether to give the i am unity or not. if they give it, under which conditions they should do so. but the americans told us that if you do not give us the i am unity, we have to leave afghanistan for good. and won't have any relationship with you. >> sreenivasan: karzai said the u.s. has agreed to his demands to respect afghan sovereignty. he discussed the issues with president obama in washington on friday. mass protests were held in islamabad, pakistan, today demanding new election reforms. thousands of supporters of an outspoken muslim cleric gathered in the capital amid heavy security. they called for an end to government inefficiency and corruption. to the south, there were funerals for many of the 86 shiites killed in last week's bom
of the constitution you can only do this as authorized by law and law is only created through the united states congress. so the president has absolutely no ground to stand on, absolutely none. >> greta: speaking of law, he's supposed to by february 14th send a budget to you and they sent a notice that the president is not going to be ready with the budget by februa february. and that's not the law. >> i don't get any sense of urgency for the president. four years in a row president submitted a budget. and four years, not a single democrat, not a single republican house has ever voted for the president's budget ever. >> greta: suppose congress doesn't vote to raise the debt ceiling. president obama does it unilaterally, what are you going to do? >> this is the constitutional crisis. i don't know exactly what that looks like, but the president has absolutely no authority to do that. i don't know how you exactly deal with that, but he cannot do that. there's absolutely no way. >> greta: if he doesn't-- he says if he's not going to change the spending, he says spending is separate from the debt ce

support for stronger gun laws. a brand new nbc/"wall street journal" poll show asthma jort of americans, that's 56%, think gun control laws should be tightened in this country. in thames of specific gun proposals being considered, there's even wider support requiring background checks on all gun purchases, eliminating the 40% of gun sales that currently get no checks at all has overwhelming support. a "new york times" poll finds 9 in 10 americans support such a law. including 9 in 10 who say there is a gun in their household. a ban on high capacity magazines is backed by more than 6 in 10 and by a majority of gun owning householtz. 53% say they support a ban on semiautomatic weapons and in if youtown, aurora, tucson, or any of the some 90 gun deaths each day weren't enough, there's perhaps a new poster boy for the gun problem in america. his name is richard schmidt, a white supreme sibs with a felony conviction for manslaughter who managed to acquire an arsenal of 18 assault weapons and other firearms along with more than 40,000 rounds of ammunition. nbc news national investigative corr

required by law to go ahead and pay these bills. separately, they also have to authorize the raising of the debt ceiling in order to make sure that those bills are paid. and so what congress can't do is tell me to spend x, and then say but we're not going to give you the authority to go ahead and pay the bills. >> the economist made a laundry list of what would happen if congressional republicans refused to raise the debt limit. failure to raise the debt ceiling would force immediate spending cuts equal for 6% of gdp. not only would that threaten to send the economy back into recession, it would also deprive many of money needed to meet their own obligations, setting off a chain reaction of defaults that could incite investors to dump their holdings, driving up interest rates. joining me now is ezra klein, an msnbc columnist, who could add more. ezra, for the 99th episode of what happens if we don't raise the debt ceiling. give us the idea of what the latest talk in washington is of what may or may not happen. >> we got a call from the head economist for j.p. morgan, and we asked abo

of the reaction this week. senator max baucus "before passing new laws we need a thoughtful debate that respects responsible law abiding gun owners in montana instead of one side fits all directives from washington. senator tim johnson, democrat of south dakota, "it makes common sense to not have one size fits all. senator mark begich, democrat of alaska, "i feel like it's going to be hard for they of these pieces of legislation to pass at this point." these are democrats. what is he going to bring to bear on that? >> it is a tough issue. i will say this, these are commonsense proposals that respect the rights of gun owners. let's start there. and i think if you look at high-capacity magazines, assault weapons, universal background checks, the progress we can make on mental health and school safety, all of these enjoy enormous support of the american people. democrats and republicans, so i think that putting together the legislative coalition is going to be hard obviously but we're very confident. i do think things have changed since newtown, you know, senator manchin and republicans and democra

care law focused on the individual mandate, less attention was given to the employer mandate and how it affects small businesses and low wage workers? some wendy's and taco bell franchises are now cutting back workers' hours in order to avoid having to provide health coverage. a requirement of the health care law that goes into effect next year. the law will require businesses with more than 50 full-time employees to offer health care or pay a $2,000 fine for not doing so. >> the parent company for olive garden and red lobster has also begun hiring more part-time workers, according to the "new york times". restaurants and hotels are among the industries likely to be squeezed the hardest by the law because they are low-wage industries that do not offer coverage to most of their workers. however, a study by the urban institute said complaints of many business owners were unfounded. while businesses with 100 to 1,000 employees may see cost increases, large businesses were unlikely to be affected, and the affordable care act, in many cases actually reduces costs for many small businesses

for that second suspect is the main concern at this hour and i'm told by a law enforcement source that one of the main focuses that they are looking at right now, law enforcement agencies there on the ground is a wooded area next to the campus of lone star college. they believe that's where this second suspect might have fled into so they are paying a great deal of attention in that wooded area and i believe that creates a whole level of terrain and law enforcement officials on the ground must deal with. so at this hour that is what they appear to be focusing on to find that second suspect. >> and we're getting more information, ed, some of it obviously very consistent with what you're hearing, this coming in from the harris county sheriff's media relations department. let me just update our viewers on what they are saying. as i said, a lot of it consistent with what your reporting shows. they reiterate one suspect is in custody, three people taken into custody. they continue to interview all witnesses to gain as much witnesses at the campus library and five agencies have secured a perimet
